Star Wars Squadrons lets you battle in a galaxy far, far away

Who wants to fight for The Empire?

During today’s gamescom Opening Night Live presentation, Electronic Arts gave us a new look at its upcoming intergalactic dog-fighter Star Wars Squadrons.

The preview offered footage of the arcade flight sim in action, as players take battle in a series pulse-pounding space battles, alternating between pilots flying for The Resistance and The Empire – as if you want to be part of The Empire. With flashy visuals, recognisable and spacecraft, iconic characters, and VR support for PS4 and PC, Star Wars Squadrons is definitely worth keeping an eye on.

Star Wars: Squadrons launches October 2 on PS4, PC, and Xbox One.
